Lagos - The minister of sports Bolaji Abdullahi has called for criminal prosecutions to be instituted against match-fixers, KickOffNigeria.com reports.
Nigerians were stunned earlier this year when two amateur league games produced an amazing 146 goals. Although the culprits where handed sanctions ranging from lengthy suspensions to life bans, there were no criminal proceedings carried out.
In a courtesy visit by delegates of the League Management Company (LMC) to the sports minister's office, Adullahi warned that any referee of club found to be involved in match-fixing will be handed over to law enforcement agents.
